Recall roundup: Ram ProMaster and C/V Tradesman image

The North American based automaker Chrysler Group has recently issued a recall affecting the Ram ProMaster and the C/V Tradesman, because of some problems with the airbags and the head restraints.

According to the car manufacturer, there are an estimated 22,115 units of the small cargo vans which will be affected by this recall across the country and their owners will have to take them back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbags solved.

“The action follows an investigation that discovered specific vehicle configurations may adversely affect sensors that control side-curtain and/or thorax airbags, causing inadvertent deployment. Chrysler Group is unaware of any related injuries or accidents”, says the company in its official press release.

The affected vehicles are the Ram C/V Tradesman, from the 2013-2015 model year, in a total of 22,115 units, out of which 18,245 are found in the U.S. and 3,870 in Canada. The second recall is affecting the 2014 Ram ProMaster, in a total of 18,951 units in the U.S. and 2,519 in Canada. The head restraints in these vehicles “may exceed the allowable gap between an occupant’s head and the restraint”. For any more details on the subject, owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
